Sharing the Spotlight with World-Class Arts

Cleveland State University’s new Arts Campus at PlayhouseSquare is drawing rave reviews. Amid the glittering marquees of the largest performing-arts center outside New York City, our theatre and dance students hone their skills alongside arts professionals through an unparalleled partnership with PlayhouseSquare and Cleveland Play House.

CSU’s Bard-goes-Bollywood production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream set attendance records in the beautifully renovated Allen Theatre, also home to our partnership with GroundWorks DanceTheater.

In addition to rehearsal spaces and art studios with stunning downtown views, CSU’s presence in Cleveland’s premier entertainment district includes the Galleries at CSU, a stylish new exhibition space. CSU’s fast-growing film and digital media program, rated among the best in the Midwest, soon will move to the Arts Campus, too.
